We are looking for a Bioprocess modeller
(40 h per week) to strengthen our Dry Lab team.

About EV Biotech:

EV Biotech is a biotechnology company that creates microbial production platforms for high-value chemicals and proteins using computational modelling and microorganisms. By combining classical fermentation methods with the latest developments in modelling approaches we have revolutionised the methods of microbial strain engineering. Our microbial cells factories (MCFs) provide effective, bio-based alternatives to conventional chemical-synthetic production processes. Our Groningen-based team has been operational since July 2018 and is dedicated to EV’s mission to evolve the chemical feedstock market by shifting it from petrochemical-based to bio-based chemical production, thereby creating a greener economy for all.

We are looking for a Bioprocess modeller to strengthen our Dry Lab team (40 h per week).


Scope of the position:

In this position, you will perform do techno-economic analyses by running bioprocess simulations using Python. Additionally, you will work on improvement of these simulations and data quality. You will be embedded in the Dry Lab team that applies computational modelling and computer-aided learning to the development of effective microbial cell factories.


You will:

  • Create and run bioprocess simulations
  • Optimise existing bioprocess simulations
  • Run techno-economic assessment for fermentation processes
  • Improve the data quality for bioprocess simulations and techno-economic analysis
  • Improve and optimise the code for the bioprocess and techno-economic analysis


You have:

  • Bachelor or Master degree in Chemical or Bioprocess engineering, Industrial biotechnology or related field
  • Experience with bioprocess modelling
  • Python on the pre-intermediate/intermediate level
  • Knowledge related to industrial biotechnology processes and particular equipment units
  • Experience with techno-economic assessment is a plus
  • Experience with git-hub tools is a plus
  • Experience with commercial tools such as SuperPro or Aspen is a plus


We offer:

  • An exciting, professional work environment;
  • A diverse and international team of colleagues, dedicated to EV’s mission to contribute to a greener and more sustainable society; 
  • Good primary and secondary benefits.
